the only climber in the entire circuit - great day , almost no wind
Report on Mt. Lincoln page.
Six am start. Beautiful morning. Democrat was definitely the toughest, but, overall, a really easy way to bag 3 official and one unofficial 14ers
Summited Democrat first on the DECALIBR loop. Not hard, but the most difficult of the day.
First summit on DeCaLiBron. Pretty easy - 1:12 to the top. Surprisingly, I was alone on the summit.
Part of a four peak day with Cameron, Bross and Lincoln
First mountain climbed. I found it tough, but well worth it.
A great hike, with a lot of wind that day.
uneventful hike on not the most scenic 14er. Still, a fun hike on a mountain where people were actively working mining claims it looked like.
Trekked Democrat, Lincoln, and Bross in 5 hours and 35 minutes.
4944' of ascent and 7.23 miles.
Weather was good but there is gusts of wind on ridge that can knock you off your feet. You must dress in layers and take food and water! We supplied some unprepared with items.
Leave no trace.
10-mile roundtrip from winter closure, good snowy views
Came up Lincoln Amphitheater and got all 4 (Lincoln, Bross, Cameron and Democrat) before having to bail down to Kite Lake because of a storm. Found a nice couple to give me a ride back over to my car.
With CraigL. Getting ready for the Transrockies run. We used this route for some acclimating.
Reached the summit in the sunshine at about 7 a.m. then continued to Mount Cameron before weather pushed us back to the car.
First 14er summitted, continued on to Lincoln
Up demo and was heading towards Cameron when I noticed I was gonna be hit with an unavoidable storm system that lasted approximately 15 minutes. Woo!
Ran into a traffic jam on the way down. So many people now it takes all the fun out of hiking. Still a good hike though.
Started around 6AM, just beating the crowds. Perfect conditions along the whole route. Bross of course is a scree filled route down. Lots of gorgeous wildflowers. Back at car around 10:45AM.
Hiked in the late 90s, with the standard circuit of Democat, Cameron, Lincoln, and Bross.
